Re: Battlefield 3

Either way, expect a BF3 server in Tokyo for PC gamers!

Looks like the consoles are really showing their age at this piont. They obviously just dont have the capacity to run the latest games at decent framerate.

Re: Battlefield 3

I still play BF2: Project Reality on a weekly basis, so this will be a day 1 purchase for me.

I really hope they allow users to run their own dedicated servers and provide mod tools for developers. If I can run a server here in Japan, expect one up on release day.

Return it and get a legit full install copy or find a copy by other means. I'd also recommend getting windows 7 at this point.
